Ricoh GRiii

The Ricoh GRii in the Delivery Room – When Less is More Than Enough

Most plans are pretty good until they aren’t. I know I had it all planned out in my head as I waited for the birth of my son – the cameras, the lenses, and even the settings.  But my son came four weeks ahead of schedule while I was in the hospital due to issues of my own.

At the time, I was 15 years into photography having tried all sorts of systems.  And when you build up a bit of gear, sometimes having too many choices is the enemy.

But fate took care of that.
